Shamelessly Inspired (Do You, Boo!)

A woman by the name of Maya Washington presented a challenge to the world, or at least to the people following her on YouTube, to shamelessly promote yourself as a brand for a full year, 365 days.  She came up with this genius idea to create a campaign that would not only push her own limits, allow her to live by her own rules, and force herself to come out of the turtle shell she was hiding in, but also inspire others to do the same.  When I thought of how much I connected with her internal struggle of putting herself out there and sharing her gifts with the world, it was no hesitation for me to start blogging regularly again, amongst other things, and I was so excited to share this with my amazing readers.  

In the midst of preparing to move all the way across the country, I've learned so much...already.  One of the things I'm beginning to notice about myself is how easily influenced I can be.  There have been so many different occasions where I almost gave up on my dreams, just because I was listening to someone who was too afraid to dream.  So, in order for me to stay focused and on target, I'm being extremely rational about what conversations I'm engaging in, what I'm allowing to enter my mind/spirit, what I read/listen to, and so forth.  Staying inspired is extremely important and it is going to be the key to how far I go.  

So...I have boldly decided to be apart of the S H A M E L E S S movement, adding my own unique twists along the way.  10 Tweets per day that promote my brand, my message, my art, etc.  4 blog posts per week that do the same, 2 YT videos every 2 weeks, and 4 new business contacts per month.  It is time to release this staggering fear of what others might think.  No more hiding.  This mission, ultimately, is to live on purpose and continue to chase dreams, without apologizing for it.  

Are you willing to join us on this phenomenal excursion to being better people, smarter dreamers and go-getters? Say yes! Why? Let Maya and Andrea tell you by {clicking here}. How?  First of all, find out what is holding you back and run as far away from that thing as possible, whether it be fear, victimization, people, etc.  Then, whatever it is that you do...whatever you are passionate about...do, love, believe in it and go hard to make room for things to happen and for gifts to flourish!  Yes, it really is that simple! The infamous catch phrase of Mrs. Maya W 'Do you boo!' pretty much sums it up.
